Product Review

The Brocade BR-VDX6730-60-R offers a high switching capacity of 1200 Gbps and supports up to 60x 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports, with 20 active ports out of the box, making it suitable for high-density deployments. However, the limitation to only 20 active ports without additional licensing can be a drawback for environments requiring full port utilization upon deployment. Additionally, the switch features dual 500W AC power supplies and three fan modules for redundancy, but its operational temperature range is limited to 0-40°C, potentially restricting its use in environments with higher ambient temperatures.


The Brocade BR-VDX6730-60-R is a high-performance switch designed for data centers that require efficient, high-speed networking. It features 60x 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports, providing ample capacity for high-bandwidth applications. This switch is engineered with port side exhaust airflow to ensure optimal cooling and performance under heavy loads. Key to its design, the BR-VDX6730-60-R comes equipped with two 500W AC power supplies, ensuring redundant power and continuous operation, essential for mission-critical environments. The switch supports a switching capacity of 1200 Gbps, allowing for rapid data transfer and processing across the network. With a MAC address table size of 32,000, it can efficiently manage large volumes of network traffic, minimizing latency, which is remarkably low at 600 nanoseconds. This feature is crucial for applications that demand real-time performance. For management, the switch includes a RJ-45 serial console port and a RJ-45 Gigabit Management port, alongside a USB port for additional connectivity options. This flexibility facilitates easy setup and ongoing management of the switch. The device also comes with three fan modules, ensuring that the system remains cool, thus maintaining operational integrity and extending the lifespan of the hardware. The BR-VDX6730-60-R is designed for ease of integration into existing network infrastructure, with a 2U rack-mount form factor. Its operating temperature ranges from 0°C to 40°C, with a non-operating storage temperature range from -25°C to 70°C. This wide range of operating temperatures ensures reliability in various environmental conditions. Humidity tolerance is also a critical aspect of the BR-VDX6730-60-R's design, with an operating humidity range of 10% to 85% non-condensing and a non-operating storage humidity range of 10% to 90% non-condensing. This ensures that the switch can perform reliably even in environments with varying humidity levels. The switch's altitude operating limit is up to 3000 meters, making it suitable for deployment in a wide range of geographical locations, including high-altitude sites. For non-operating and storage, the altitude tolerance expands up to 12 kilometers, providing flexibility in terms of transportation and storage conditions. Key specifications include: -
  • Back-to-Front Airflow: Ensures efficient cooling.
  • 20x Active Ports: License included for activation.
  • 600 nanoseconds Latency: Minimizes delay for time-sensitive applications.
Overall, the Brocade BR-VDX6730-60-R is designed for organizations that demand high-speed, reliable networking capabilities. Its comprehensive features, including high port density, low latency, and advanced management options, make it an excellent choice for data centers looking to optimize their network performance and reliability.
